The cellular level – eNAMPT stimulation
A build-up of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) in the body can result in the onset of various diseases and poor health outcomes. The University of Manchester have developed a new series of small molecule compounds, specifically designed to stimulate eNAMPT dimerization and have demonstrated these have potent activity leading to a corrective effect in in vitro and in vivo phenotypic models of diabetes. These could also have benefits in the treatment of a number of other diseases.
